A top career coach and HR consultant, Laurie Ruettimann knows firsthand that work can get a lot better for all workers— including talent-focused professionals.

In a session packed with insights and stories from her new book, she’ll lay out the framework necessary to elevate and promote the employee experience while championing personal interests and creating a life you enjoy. You’ll leave with strategies for approaching work in a smart and healthy manner, knowing when to sign off for the day, doubling down on your capacity to learn, taking better risks using a more innovative framework, and beating impostor syndrome once and for all.
